Two forms are distinguished: (1) cytogenetic, associated with monosomy for the X chromosome (45,X) or structural rearrangements of the X or Y chromosomes ; and (2) genetic, in which the gonadal dysgenesis is associated with an inherited mutant gene, but there is a normal female (46,XX) or male (46,XY) chromosome component.

It is possible also that the description of MEN II as autosomal dominant with high penetrance is an over-simplification. Data from Norway (Normann, 1977) and our own experience (unpublished) indicates that penetrance may sometimes be incomplete, in that family members who were clinically normal aged 65 or more have transmitted the gene; and in some families the phenotypic expression of the syndrome seems to differ in different branches.
